$150,000,000.00+ POTENTIAL WILL CONTEST, ESTATE AND TRUST LITIGATION LAW FIRM AVAILABLE TO REPRESENT CLIENTS FROM THE CHAMPAIGN, CHAMPAIGN COUNTY, ILLINOIS AREA, WE WERE CONTACTED BY AN HEIR WHO WAS BASICALLY PROVIDED FOR AS A ONE-THIRD (1/3) BENEFICIARY IN REGARD TO AN ESTATE PROJECTED TO BE IN EXCESS OF $150,000,000.00 BEFORE A NEW WILL WAS SIGNED ABOUT A YEAR PRIOR TO THE DEATH OF THE DECEDENT. THE SURVIVING SPOUSE MADE SURE THE EXISTENCE OF THE NEW PURPORTED WILL WAS NOT KNOWN TO THE HEIR PRIOR TO THE DATE OF DEATH AND IT WAS ONLY AFTER THE DATE OF DEATH THAT THE HEIR WAS INFORMED OF THE NEW WILL BEING MADE. IT APPEARED THAT THERE MAY BE ISSUES IN REGARD TO DURESS, UNDER INFLUENCE, TORTIOUS INTERFERENCE WITH AN INHERITANCE EXPECTANCY AND/OR LACK OF MENTAL CAPACITY IN REGARD TO THE PURPORTED NEW WILL.

$150,000,000.00+ POTENTIAL WILL CONTEST, ESTATE AND TRUST LITIGATION LAW FIRM AVAILABLE TO REPRESENT CLIENTS FROM THE CHAMPAIGN, CHAMPAIGN COUNTY, ILLINOIS AREA, WE WERE CONTACTED BY AN HEIR WHO WAS BASICALLY PROVIDED FOR AS A ONE-THIRD (1/3) BENEFICIARY IN REGARD TO AN ESTATE PROJECTED TO BE IN EXCESS OF $150,000,000.00 BEFORE A NEW WILL WAS SIGNED ABOUT A YEAR PRIOR TO THE DEATH OF THE DECEDENT. THE SURVIVING SPOUSE MADE SURE THE EXISTENCE OF THE NEW PURPORTED WILL WAS NOT KNOWN TO THE HEIR PRIOR TO THE DATE OF DEATH AND IT WAS ONLY AFTER THE DATE OF DEATH THAT THE HEIR WAS INFORMED OF THE NEW WILL BEING MADE. IT APPEARED THAT THERE MAY BE ISSUES IN REGARD TO DURESS, UNDER INFLUENCE, TORTIOUS INTERFERENCE WITH AN INHERITANCE EXPECTANCY AND/OR LACK OF MENTAL CAPACITY IN REGARD TO THE PURPORTED NEW WILL. THIS MATTER INVOLVED A SECOND SPOUSE MARRIED TO THE DECEDENT FOR APPROXIMATELY TWENTY (20) YEARS BEFORE HIS DEATH. DURING THE ENTIRE PERIOD OF TIME THE DECEDENT AND THE SURVIVING SPOUSE KNEW OF AN INHERITANCE PROVISION FOR THE HEIR THAT MAY HAVE AMOUNTED TO $50,000,000.00 OR MORE IF A NEW WILL HAD NOT BEEN CREATED. IT APPEARED TO US THAT BASED ON THE EXPLANATION RECEIVED, THAT THERE WAS AN INTENTIONAL EFFORT TO ALIENATE THE HEIR FROM THE DECEDENT INCLUDING TO PROTECT THE FINANCIAL INTERESTS OF THE SURVIVING SPOUSE AND THOSE THAT THE SURVIVING SPOUSE WISHED TO RECEIVE UPON THE DEATH OF THE DECEDENT. IT APPEARED THAT THE DECEDENT MAY HAVE BEEN VULNERABLE BECAUSE OF LONGTIME MEDICAL ISSUES THAT WORSENED WITH THE PASSAGE OF TIME. WE THOUGHT THAT IN A WEAKENED STATE THE DECEDENT MAY HAVE BEEN EXPLOITED, INCLUDING BY THE SURVIVING SPOUSE, SUCH THAT THE INTENTS AND DESIRES OF THE SURVIVING SPOUSE WERE BASICALLY SUBSTITUTED AS THE INTENTS AND DESIRES OF THE DECEDENT IN REGARD TO THE NEWLY CREATED PURPORTED WILL IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO DEATH.

$1,000,000.00+ RECOVERY FOR STATE OF COLORADO RESIDENT IN REGARD TO TRUST LAWSUIT, IN LIEU OF RECEIVING $500.00 PER MONTH AS AN INCOME BENEFICIARY, TRUST DISPUTE, WILL CONTEST, ESTATE ADMINISTRATION, LITIGATION AND PROBATE DISPUTE LAWYER AVAILABLE TO REPRESENT CLIENTS FROM THE CARLINVILLE, MACOUPIN COUNTY, ILLINOIS AREA WE WERE CONTACTED BY AN OUT OF STATE RESIDENT COMPLAINING THAT A TRUST WAS NOT BEING ADMINISTERED PROPERLY BY AN INDIVIDUAL TRUSTEE. THE INDIVIDUAL TRUSTEE WAS AN INSURANCE AGENT AND IT TURNED OUT THAT THE ROOKIE TRUSTEE WAS ATTEMPTING TO HAVE THE BENEFICIARIES OF THE TRUST AGREE THAT VARIOUS LIFE INSURANCE POLICIES ON THE TRUSTEE AND/OR THE BENEFICIARY SHOULD BE PAID FROM THE TRUST, THEREBY RESULTING IN SALES COMMISSIONS FOR THE INSURANCE AGENT AND TRUSTEE. WE FILED SUIT IN PINCKNEYVILLE, PERRY COUNTY, ILLINOIS, AND ENGAGED IN DISCOVERY, INCLUDING WRITTEN AND DEPOSITIONS. WE WERE ABLE TO OBTAIN A SETTLEMENT WHEREBY OUR CLIENT, INSTEAD OF RECEIVING $500.00 PER MONTH AS AN INCOME BENEFICIARY, RECEIVED MORE THAN $1,000,000.00 AS CORPUS FROM THE TRUST. AFTER THE SETTLEMENT WAS REACHED, AND FUNDS WERE TRANSFERRED TO OUR CLIENT, WE DISMISSED THE CASE WITH PREJUDICE AND THAT CONCLUDED THE TRUST LAWSUIT AND THE RECOVERY ON BEHALF OF OUR CLIENT. OUR CLIENT WAS OVERWHELMED WITH THE RESULT. GOING INTO THE CASE, SHE WAS SEEKING TO HAVE THE TRUSTEE REMOVED. WE DEVELOPED A STRATEGY THAT INSTEAD OF REMOVAL, WITH OUR CLIENT CONTINUING TO RECEIVE $500.00 PER MONTH AS AN INCOME BENEFICIARY WE REACHED A RESOLUTION IN REGARD TO THE ENTIRETY OF THE TRUST, INCLUDING SO THAT IT WOULD CONTINUE FOR DECADES. THE RESULT OBTAINED, PURSUANT TO THE AUTHORIZATION AND INSTRUCTIONS OF THE CLIENT, WAS BEYOND THE CLIENT’S WILDEST DREAMS. OUR CLIENT ADVISED THAT SHE WAS HELPING WITH THE EDUCATION OF HER ADULT DAUGHTER IN THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA AND SOME OF THE PROCEEDS WERE USED BY OUR CLIENT TO PURCHASE A VEHICLE THAT HER DAUGHTER NEEDED FOR TRANSPORTATION PURPOSES TO ATTEND CLASSES.
